at two meetingt held in Zion City yes

sented Dowie and declared that the de
posed leader would give to the public
in a few days a statement of bis side
of the controversy.
For the first time since the differences
arose between Dowie and Voliva, the
general overseer prayed for Dowie and
asked the people to do the same. They
were asked to pray that Dowie be guid
ed aright in any step he was about to
take. According to the Inter Ocean, an
an agreement was reached yesterday bj
which Dowie wilL for the remainder of
his life retain the "First Apostle" of
the Christian Catholic Church, while the
temporal affairs of the community will
be in the hand of Voliva and his sup

should drop an attempts to dispute the
